Description:

Manufactured from 1868 to 1875. Standard Smith & Wesson markings and matching assembly mark on the barrel, cylinder, and grip frame. Custom Mexican eagle carved left grip panel with both panels numbered to another gun. Provenance: The John Fox Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 80% plus original blue finish with loss concentrated on the cylinder and near the muzzle. Cylinder drag line and mild general handling evidence likely from time spent in a holster. The grips show a few cracks and some discoloration but are overall very good. Mechanically excellent.
